Having grown up and lived in a household with a more British influence, atchar wasn’t something I was really aware even existed. If I was exposed to it, I certainly do not remember. It was only after I had moved to South Africa that I was exposed to the wonderful world of atchar. And one of our home-grown South African brands, Peppadew® has launched a delicious range of Atchars!
A good atchar requires a real lactic acid fermentation process to produce it’s unique taste and flavour. The Peppadew® Atchars are packed in lined, well-sealed drums to prevent any exposure to air, which ensures that a true lactic acid fermentation process takes place.
If you are like me and not a hug fan of super oily condiments (I hate an oil slick in my mouth after I have eaten something), then you will enjoy the Peppadew® Atchars as have less oil than most of the other atchars on the market.
The best thing about the Peppadew® Atchars is the unique and very South African flavour they offer with the addition of Piquanté peppers.
Atchar is such a diverse and delicious accompaniment to so many dishes. So be sure to give the new Peppadew® Atchars a try…don’t tell anyone but my favourite is the Peppadew® Mild Mango Atchar with Piquanté Peppers, I love it on a ham, avo and cottage cheese sarmie…strange I know but so delish!
The range consists of the following four variants and retails for approximately R22.99 each
- Peppadew® Mild Vegetable Atchar with Piquanté Peppers
- Peppadew® Hot Vegetable Atchar with Piquanté Peppers
- Peppadew® Mild Mango Atchar with Piquanté Peppers
- Peppadew® Hot Mango Atchar with Piquanté Peppers
Just keep in mind they are currently only available at Checkers and Spar in Gauteng.
